Busaba Eathai Kingston

Squaremeal Review of Busaba Eathai Kingston ?

Ten years, ten branches. Busaba Eathai has picked up the pace of late, but standards remain high & its regulars loyal. This chain of Thai eateries, conceived by Alan Yau, gets away with things a less sexy outfit could not: hour-long waits for a berth, no starters, no desserts, communal tables. What’s its secret (aside from the Thai calamari which has most readers in rapture)? In short, it’s ‘quick, affordable, informal & open all day’. Chic interiors, low lighting & that all-important ‘buzz’ don’t do it any harm either. There’s a feeling that portions are shrinking, but the menu of stir-fries, curries, noodles & salads still pleases most visitors. The appeal of certain dishes never diminishes – think stargazer monkfish curry, stir-fried morning glory, & pad thai with prawns, not forgetting those delectable calamari.

I ordered the Pad Kwetio and it also was very greasy. It had very little flavour to it and didn't even taste Thai - more like Chinese noodles from...

    Half a Slice of Toast :: Half a Slice of Toast - Busaba Eathai

    My sister and her boyfriend always go to Busaba Eathai (they’re well on their way to Busaba enlightenment – check the app, it gives loyalty rewards). I’ve always been a fan too but hadn’t been in a while (at least not enough to download the app) and had cravings for it after they kept mentioning it, so decided to go for lunch. I had my eye on the coconut chicken noodle soup but since they have a set menu deal at lunch (2 courses for £9.90; 3 for £11.90), I decided to put the noodle soup on hold and go for that instead. I went with my Aunty and we opted for 2 courses, starter and main, since we knew we’d be going out...
